When driving this morning I noticed my vehicle didn't accelerate upon pressing down the throttle. However I noticed an increase in speed when pressing down on the brakes and a simultaneous jerk when stepping on the throttle in the 'stop and go' traffic I encountered. I had to restart the engine and I noticed the car performed normally and has done so since.

Just confused as to what caused the earlier situation?

Did you try to get the codes read? (or did no check engine lights come on?) If no light or codes, this may be one of those cases what I'd call fixed while troubleshooting ... no real answer and nothing popping out at me as to what might have caused the issue. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 24 '14 at 22:05
